Terrell Owens Still Can't Keep His Big Mouth Shut, Calls Darrelle Revis 'Average'

They say you become wiser with age. Not Terrell Owens, though, who is still as dumb as doornail.

Not only does he co-host the worst show to hit television since Scott Baio is 45 and Single, he is now calling out Jets CB Darrelle Revis, saying he's "average."

This makes a lot of sense. I mean, Revis rendered Owens invisible last year, holding him to just 6 catches/44 yards in two games COMBINED! If you had a mute button to silence his whining, you wouldn't have even known he was on the field! Just another poor wide receiver marooned on Revis Island, lost at sea.

Associated Press' Joe Kay was on top of things, and provided some quotes from Owens the drama queen.

Asked on Tuesday how he would describe Revis as a cornerback, Owens said, "Just an average corner to me."

Later, when asked to rank Revis among the cornerbacks who have covered him, Owens said, "In my career? He's a great corner." He then caught himself and changed his answer to, "Uh, a good corner.

"No disrespect. He's only done one thing for one year. You talk about shutdown corners, you need to repeatedly do it year-in and year-out," he said. "I think he did it one year and everybody made a lot of hoopla about it. I think he started feeling himself, then he wanted to come out and say that I am a slouch."

I think my favorite quote is the second one. You know, the one where he backpedals, initially saying Revis was "great," and then had to change his answer, because he knew he was wrong in the first place. 

So let me get this straight T.O., how is a great corner (your words), "average?"

You will lose again on Thursday, slouch. In front of a national audience, on primetime TV. And we will get our popcorn ready and eat it; while we laugh at you, constantly.
